John 626–28

Dear Church,

This Sunday we’ll dig into John 6:22–35, the opening portion of Jesus’ discourse on the bread of life which dominates the rest of John 6. What stands out immediately is how earthly-minded the crowd remains even after the miraculous feeding. They insist on working for earthly bread while Jesus exhorts them to look beyond that which perishes. Another striking aspect of this passage is how Jesus responds to their question about what it is to do the “works of God.” Jesus’ answer gets to the very heart of a proper understanding of what it means to justified by faith and not by works. 

John 6 is a wonderful world in and of itself! I’m looking forward to exploring it deeper with you this Sunday!

See you soon,
